David whacks Goliath in the head with a cheese stuffed meatball.
When Elkhart, Indiana Pizza Hut manager Tony Rohr refused to open on Thanksgiving, his bosses made him write a letter of resignation. He did, and it was the “screw you” letter you wish you’d written. CNN’s Faith Karimi quotes Rohr as stating that the letter read:
I accept that the refusal to comply with this greedy, immoral request means the end of my tenure with this company. I hope you realize that it is the people at the bottom of the totem pole that make your life possible.
Upon completing the letter, Rohr says that he was fired. Now, here’s where it gets good: Pizza Hut’s corporate office got wind of the shit storm and decided that maybe this wasn’t the best publicity for the company that can stuff cheese into anything. The company sent CNN a statement reading:
We fully respect an employee’s right to not work on a holiday, which is why the vast majority of Pizza Huts in America are closed on Thanksgiving. As a result, we strongly recommended that the local franchisee reinstate the store manager and they have agreed. We look forward to them welcoming Tony back to the team.
Rohr’s not sure whether he’ll take his old job back.
